Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to file an objection to garnishment in the court that issued the garnishment order. You need to argue that the garnishment is causing significant damage and present a financial statement to the court proving your claim.
You also need to contact the law firm to contact the creditor as well to negotiate further to work on that debt as well.

Thank you for your reply.
If the garnishment order was filed in the state where you live, that is the court where you need to file your objection to garnishment.
